Reasons for hip pain

If we are in pain, we go to a doctor to figure out what is wrong.

Our body parts work together to ensure we’re able to move freely. If anything is out of whack, hip discomfort may occur!

Here are some common causes of hip pain:

  • Pinched sciatic nerve
  • Unbalanced posture or gait
  • Acute injuries (sprains, strains, and dislocations)
  • Cartilage tears/labral tears
  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Injury to the hip flexor muscles
  • Tight hip flexors
  • Weak gluteus medius muscles
  • Overuse injuries (tendinitis)
  • Muscle strain

The best way to determine the true cause of your hip pain is to see our licensed physical therapist for a thorough evaluation. Make an appointment at Forward Physical Therapy today and get started on your hip pain relief plan!

Finding relief from hip pain with physical therapy

Hip pain does not have to keep you from doing what you want! Physical therapy can alleviate, if not eliminate your hip pain.

First, one of the skilled physical therapists at Forward Physical Therapy in Knoxville, TN will examine your hips to find evidence of misalignment or structural damage. Next, they will evaluate your stance, posture, gait, and range of motion.

After that, a customized treatment plan will be devised to relieve any additional tension or pressure on your body. Specific workouts will be prescribed to lessen joint pain and ease movement.

This includes workouts to improve your back muscles, lower abdominal muscles, and pelvic muscles, as well as core-building activities. Core exercises will help you more evenly distribute your weight and enhance your posture.

Specialized treatments, like joint mobilization, may also be added to your recovery plan. Joint mobilization improves joint movement to relieve pain and promotes the healing of damaged tissues.

Before you know it, you will be resuming your favorite activities with more flexibility and less pain!
